COMMENT POSTED BY JOHN DONOVAN ON THE SHELL SPONSORED “NEXT GENERATION ENERGY” WEBSITE

27 August 2008

Talking about wind, this blog site sports an impressive roll call of esteemed expert contributors including William Connolley, Samuel Hazen, James Hrynyshyn, Solomon Hsiang, Erin Johnson, Sheril Kirshenbaum, Scott Mackenzie and Joseph Romm.

I wonder if any of these people of integrity and high repute are feeling queasy about being linked to a blog sponsored by the oil giant Shell, which has been censored by advertising regulators in the UK and the Netherlands for blatant acts of greenwashing; Shell has been found guilty on three counts thus far.

Misleading the public is nothing new for Shell.

It did the same in the massive securities fraud revealed in January 2004 after hydrocarbon reserves volumes had been artificially inflated. The FSA found Shell guilty of fooling the markets. The U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission found Shell guilty of securities fraud. The combined fines from the FSA and the SEC amounted to $150 million.

Is Shell a good company to get into bed with as a sponsor of your site?
